Giant Day for Sportsbooks and Sports Fans Alike
There is more than one word that comes to mind when thinking about the Giants win last Sunday…”Incredible”, “Improbable”, “Impossible”, etc. No sports betting website had the Giants pegged to win it all. This was a sure thing right? I remember talking with some of my friends, telling them I liked the Giants for the game. Do you want to bet on it? Unfortunately, I didn’t. As much as I wanted the Giants to win, I couldn’t separate premonition from wishful thinking.
If only I could go back in time and put it all on the Giants…Who among us doesn’t share this sentiment. I’ll tell you who, those who were actually betting on them to win! Eli Manning shocked the sports betting world, you might say the sports world all together by playing a near perfect game to complete maybe the most improbable upset in the history of the Super Bowl. This is like playing Monday morning quarterback…could have, should have, would have…
I watched Giants play a couple of months ago, at Giants stadium, against the Minnesota Vikings. The lost against a Vikings teams playing without their starting running back. To think that this team will end up winning the Super Bowl seemed far fetched at the time. However, watching them again play the Patriots on December 29, you knew that something special was happening. Even though they lost, the Giants stood toe to toe with New England. What happened next is every sports betting fan’s dream, or worst nightmare depending.
